in Liturgy & Sermons

Welcome to Sojourn’s weekly worship music set list review & service recap. You’ll not only read a list of the songs we led, but also the readings and prayers from our liturgy. You can also watch the video stream of the whole service from our Facebook page, or here below (you’ll also see a higher resolution video of the sermon alone).

Our liturgy is written by Worship Director Justin Shaffer, in collaboration with our Creative Team at Sojourn Church New Albany and worship staff at the other four Sojourn Collective churches in the Louisville area.

This Sunday, following the scripture reading by Worship Leader Meg Shaffer, Pastor Jonah Sage preached from Daniel 4 in our series from the book of Daniel, Stand: Staying Strong In A World Of Chaos. To learn more about Sojourn Church, click here.

(begin Psalm 34 for 1 minute…)


Welcome to sojourn! I’m Justin… We begin every gathering with a Call to Worship to ground ourselves in the truth, beauty, and goodness of God. Today, we’re going to sing a song based on Psalm 34. Feel free to sing or just follow along… either way, we invite you to taste and see that the Lord is good! 

Psalm 34 -Taste and See (All singers)

Build My Life (Justin)  


There is NO one like our God… from eternity past until all eternity future this has and will ever be. Let’s humble ourselves before the Lord in a spirit of confession and honesty. Hear the word of the Lord:

20 Brothers and sisters, stop thinking like children. In regard to evil be infants, but in your thinking be adults. 21 In the Law it is written:

“With other tongues

and through the lips of foreigners

I will speak to this people,

but even then they will not listen to me,

says the Lord.”                                                                                      -1 Corinthians 14:20-21 NIV

Let’s take a moment to be still and silent and listen to the Lord.

There is a Fountain Filled With Blood (Ryan)


Hear this powerful assurance:

14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.                             -I Timothy 1:14-16 NIV

Thanks be to God for saving sinners such as I, such as you, such as Saul before he would become Paul the apostle.

As the giving baskets are passed around, let’s pray that the Lord who IS king, make no mistake, would be the king of our hearts… the Lord of our thoughts, actions, and deeds. Let’s sing!

King of My Heart (Meg)     


God’s goodness is a very real presence here… dwells richly among his people. Let’s greet one another in God’s peace today, remembering our Lord’s words:  “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Mt. 18:20)



We Are Listening (Justin)


So Will I (Meg)


Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen.                                                                                                     -1 Timothy 1:17 NIV
